Support special characters such as # in LDAP Group names.

For some reason, HCL doesn’t support all characters in LDAP Group names.

See statement “Do not use +, #, = (plus, pound, equal) because they are known to cause problems in group names.” from:

Please also refer to related support case CS0418520.

LDAP standard supports these character. Please extend this to Domino LDAP as well. # in group names help ordering the names in the contact list of Sametime.

    I know in past I struggled with # character in group names for Sametime.

    The old IBM knowledge base had a technote about "Special characters in common name now handled by DN_REV_PARSE=2 parameter" . Unfortunaletly I found no technote in the HCL KB.

    Maybe this could fix your LDAP issue.
